    What do you guys think?

    Okay so I want to pick something up for the low, not looking for anything crazy loud I just want it to be prominent and sound good. I found a posting on cl for 2 12" Adire Shiva MKIV subs in a sealed enclosure with a JBL 600.1 and the asking price is $175, heres a link: 12"adire shiva subs+box+amp

    I don't know anything about these woofers and did a little research and they seem like some decent low power sq woofers. Looking for some input though, Im wanting to know if this is a good deal to hop on and any input from people who have heard these woofers would be great.

    Im running an old Diamond CM3 12 in a small sealed box on about 250 watts now and want a little more bass and better lows.

    Used to run Adire Tempests which are 15". Very good sounding sub and surprisingly loud when I ran it ported.

    Seems like a very good deal if the subs are in good working condition...

    Sounds like a good deal to me. If everything sounds great and is in good condition, I would say that's a very fair price.

    Re: What do you guys think?

    Well just met up with him and hooked it up in my car, and they do sound great picked it up for $160. I think I could get a little more out of them in a different box though this one has a few open screw holes from having an amp mounted on it. I wonder how these would do in a 4th order?

    ported is what I'd do, my tempest was very nice going from sealed to ported. Shiva's aren't high power/SPL subs....

    Yep, what he said. ^

No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.
